Conference Saturdays: back to camp, and digital lies

Any conference which offers the opportunity to learn, share and connect is worth attending. That’s why I’ve registered for PodCamp Toronto.

Real connections don’t rely on influence

Last week we were visited by author P.J. Bracegirdle, illustrator Susan Mitchell, their son Ewan and author Kevin Bolger. P.J. was in town to speak at a conference and we’d been talking with him about getting together since we first met him online a few years ago though our currently-on-extended-hiatus children’s book podcast, Just One […]

Nothing beats being there

The good news is Andrea’s completed two-thirds of her chemo program. If things continue to take place on schedule, we’ll be ringing the bell in the chemotherapy clinic sometime around 3 p.m. on April 1. No doubt I’ll have that event fully documented. (You can follow along at WeCanRebuildHer.com) The disappointing news is that chemo […]

Textual Healing at PodCamp Toronto

Andrea and I are really disappointed that we won’t be able to attend PodCamp Toronto this year. It’s always a great event at which to learn, meet new people and reconnect with our friends. However, with Andrea in chemotherapy right now, we have to sit this one out. The good news is that we’ll be […]

Family and Friends First

I spent the weekend reconnecting with my brothers Bob, Jamie and David.  While they are in fact real brothers, I’m the virtual brother of the group.  Twenty years ago when I was in a band with Bob and Jamie, I spent enough time at their house that I was given my own key, joined their […]

I’m a Content Paleontologist

There are countless ways to produce audio and video programs, each as relevant as the next and I practice many of them on various personal and professional projects.  At my core, though, I’m a Content Paleontologist (hat tip: Andrea Ross).  And, that was the metaphor at the centre of my Workflow and Creative Process session […]

Post-production media creation

Early on in my podcasting career, I established myself as a post-production-media-creator; a producer who relies heavily on editing and production techniques to present and craft content for strong delivery using storytelling styles.  It was unusual.  At the time, most podcasters were recording their shows from the hip which gave them an edge and energy […]

I’m looking for photos of podcasters doing what they do (recording, editing and mixing) as a backdrop for part of my session Workflow and the Creative Process at PodCamp Toronto.  If you’re a podcaster and you have a photo of yourself doing one of these things, please send your photo (or a link to your […]

Workflow and the Creative Process

I have just joined the list of amazing speakers and topics for the PodCamp Toronto… Workflow and the Creative Process – A discussion on how to pull together recorded content, chop it up, mix it up and sequence it in a way that delivers a message and/or tells a story that engages your audience.  This […]

Communications is a process

Communications is a process

One of the great underlying themes at PodCamp Ottawa 2008 is that communications — particularly anything released within social media and new media — is a process, not a result.  Some great examples were shared throughout the day to illustrate this point including Jeff Parks‘ story about finger painting with a little girl, Maurizio Ortolani […]
